The Philadelphia Story to return to theaters in February
The classic film "The Philadelphia Story" returns to screens for two nights in February.
The romantic comedy will screen nationwide on Sunday, February 18, and Wednesday, February 21. TCM Primetime Host Ben Mankiewicz will offer newly produced commentary before and after each presentation, according to a news release.
Here's how the film is described in the release from Fathom Events: In one of her most famous roles, Katharine Hepburn plays Tracy Lord, the daughter of a well-to-do Pennsylvania family who is about to embark on a second marriage, this time to staid-but-wealthy George Kittredge (John Howard). As the wedding plans get underway, Tracy’s first husband C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant) shows up at the house, in part to shield Tracy from the prying eyes of an overly ambitious reporter (James Stewart) assigned to cover the nuptials. Produced by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and directed by George Cukor, The Philadelphia Story is a sparkling example of Hollywood romance at its finest.
Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. are the sponsors of the event; the film will show at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time on Sunday, Feb. 18 and Wednesday, Feb. 21.
